However, in research conducted by Prof. Harriett de Wit ( Psychiatry And Behavioral Neuroscience, University Of Chicago), there were 56 total participants. Some of them were given microdoses of LSD around 13 mg or 26 mg whereas in the earlier study the participants were given 100 to 200 mg in 19th-century experiments.

The recent patients got the microdoses separated in 5 hours sessions four 4 times, gaps of 3 to 4 days were also given for resting. After getting them cleared up mental performance and drug overdose sessions were conducted to check the mental performance of participants. The study concluded and the results were that LSD in some particular quantity was safe to use without any negative effects. 

LSD works with the serotonin system, it is the neurotransmitter through which antidepressants like SSRIs work, so there’s some undiscovered neurobiological reason for thinking there might be some validity.
